Maptek Customer - How do I avoid losing my toolbars and preferences when I update Vulcan versions or change computer?
Maptek Customer - Can you tell me more about the SDK available in recent versions of Vulcan?
Steve Sullivan - The Vulcan SDK is a tool kit for third party software developers to integrate their applications with Vulcan data structures.
From a technical perspective, the Vulcan SDK allows you to:
An excellent example of a tool that uses SDK functionality is Vulcan Stope Optimiser
(Underground > Analyse > Stope Optimiser).
The SDK supports Vulcan V8.2 and later, with only one version of the SDK required to support any of those versions. The latest version of the Vulcan SDK is compiled with Visual Studio 2012. Future versions will be compiled with Visual Studio 2013.
The SDK is a C/C++ library with a C header, making it fairly easy to use in most environments (e.g. we have people using it from Fortran and C#).
The Vulcan SDK is a handy tool for companies looking to maximise their use of Vulcan. If you would like to find out more, send me an email at email@example.com
